Two tourists were injured in an accident involving a Slovak bus in Romania on Monday, July 1, with one requiring hospital treatment to take several days, travel agency Globtour, which organised the trip, announced. Globtour further informed the TASR newswire that the accident occurred when the driver attempted to avoid a dog that had suddenly run onto the road near the town of Deva. Two tourists had to be taken to hospital.
"One person was released after necessary treatment, while the other will remain in hospital for four-five days," said Globtour, adding that all the other passengers are in good health. The Slovak bus was on its way back to Slovakia from a holiday resort in Bulgaria. It was carrying 21 tourists and three drivers. The accident took place in western Romania, between the towns of Deva and Arad.
